Claiming Ishmael Beah...
Sierra Visions On March 5th 2007, I had the opportunity to sit in on a reading by author of a Long Way Gone; Ishmeal Beah. I was a tad bit late so I missed the reading itself. The room was packed full with standing room only for me and my two salone friends who were unlucky enough to be late. The room was full of mostly white folks and my two friends and I accounted for 50% of the Sierra Leonean population in the room...

Back In Business
Last year the GoSL and the UK DFID embarked on the "Sierra Leone: Back in Business" Campaign; an effort to bring investors back into Sierra Leone. I dont know if this campaign has increased the number of investors in the country but i think GoSL and DFID were more concerned with the process of the campaign rather than outcome. Long before Sierra Leone was back in business, in 2000 when the biggest investor in the country was probably the UNAMSIL peace keepers, CELTEL International B.V became one of the first multinational companies to begin operations in Sierra Leone. Since then CELTEL has invested millions of dollars into Sierra Leone's economy, making it the number 1 provider of mobile phone services in the country.

Should Sierra Leoneans start blogging, Or leave it to the foreign bloggers?
Sierra Visions Anonymous writes "
Foreign Bloggers in Sierra Leone: the good, the bad, and the culturally insensitive

I have been blogging for a year or so now and its been great. Recently I got an email from http://www.globalvoicesonline.org/ and was asked to be a volunteer author/blogger for Sierra Leone. My responsibility would be to do a round up of interesting Salone related issues that bloggers were discussing. That means I have to read any and all blogs that discussed Salone. In the course of this process, I’ve discovered two things: (1) most people blogging about Salone are foreigners living there (2) I don’t completely like the way some of these bloggers present/discuss Salone and its people.
